Enter Light

To astronomy enthusiasts, Orion is the highly visible constellation named after the Greek hunter Zeus, supposedly placed among the stars so many eons ago. To metal fans, “Orion” is an instrumental by Metallica, from the classic album, Master of Puppets. But aside from sharing a name, these two Orions have nothing in common... or do they? Well, they do now. This Saturday, the seemingly disparate worlds of stargazing and head banging collide at the South Florida Science Museum, which features a laser light show set to the music of Metallica. Of course, that will likely harsh the mellow of laser-light show traditionalists who’d probably rather groove to some Floyd. Fortunately for them, the evening concludes with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.

The laser light show starts at 7 p.m. with Metallica; the Floyd kicks in at 8:30. Find the museum at 4801 Dreher Trail N. in West Palm Beach. Admission costs $8. Call 561-832-1988.
